    Suggestions

    • Don’t soak the pakoras and vadas in water for a much longer time as they will become soggier.
    • Prefer using thick curd for serving the vadas. If you have watery curd, you can drain out extra water, by squeezing the curd onto a cloth and then whisk the curd well and use it.
    • You can make sweet chutney with tamarind, dry mango chunks or dates.
